      All three would do me. But it's really got to be bacon.

      As long they are organic they are fine. But my favorite is ham from pastured pork.

    A new study reports that eating red meat increases your risk of death by 20%

      So funny, because another study proved that people with genetic roots in hunting societies (and to a large degree nomadic herding societies, though not quite as much) suffer massive lifespan longevity reductions and horrifically high proportional death rates by adopting diets suited for humans whose genetic ancestry trace back to gatherer and even farming societies.

      It's almost like there isn't a one-size-fits all dietary answer for us to all buy into and worship like a religion or something.

      All the "experts" are trying to sell something. Either a book, a product or a belief system. Arrogance is the plague of our time.

    Yes, eating red meat is associated with an increased risk of colon cancer and breast cancer. Moreover, nitrites in preserved meats such as bacon and sausages can interact with chlorgenic acid in coffee to form carcinogenic compounds.

    I was taught this during my undergraduate studies in the early 1970s, so your information is nothing new.

    As with most things, though, having these foods in moderation is probably not going to cause huge effects, all the more so if they are balanced with a good intake of foods such as fruit, vegetables and wine, which contain cancer-fighting antioxidants.

      What do you consider moderation?  I don'T believe every day fits the bill. Besides, the pig carries the swine flu virus in its lungs. If that cow you got the steak from was fed growth hormones(more than likely), given antibiotics to fight disease on the feed lots they live/gow on and finally they are fed grains grown with pesticides chemical fertilizers. where do you think all of this ends up when you eat the meat of these animals. Note to the unwise, you can not boil out, soak out, freeze out, or drink out these toxins that are in the cellular level and when you consume it you are what you eat.

    Yes, turkey bacon would be my favorite too!  Lean and healthy.

      Chickens, turkeys and cows are raised/live on feed lots. If the are not using organic feed you are not eating that lean healthy meat you think you may be getting. Add fish and swine to the list. If it is not stamped just like the produce you are not getting organic food unless you raise your own. Read the labels, everything stating natural or organic on the package if you look you may find you have been misled. I'm not going to make very many friends  here, because I'm interfering with your taste buds. But I want you to become aware of what is really going on. Don't be fooled, your life and your loved ones life are at stake. This is a serious situation with what you are putting into your body's thinking you are eating healthy. Look for my hub on this matter soon.

      I know I won't make any friends here cause I'm "messin" with your taste buds. I ate all those things also. But the Creator made certain animals to clean up the garbage so we would'nt be over whelmed by the filth. The lobster, crab, shrimp,catfish(loved all this) and all the other bottom feeders keep the rivers, lakes, and oceans clean to the best of their abilities. The pig carries the swine flu virus in his lungs. To each his own.

    Any food that the majority of the people (poor) can not afford to have is not good.

    I like all three,not at once.
    it depends on my mood and what the other side dishes are.
    Canadian bacon (ham) is great with an English muffin.American bacon is great with scrambled eggs and Sausage is good with oatmeal.tongue

    It just has to be bacon.   Nothing else matches the flavor, aroma, and versatility of this pork product.

    I'm a vegetarian but when I was eating meat I liked sausage and didn't care for ham or bacon.

      I'll cook it in a big pit....you bake the bread. Ham is actually the leanest of the three. We have a restaurant here that gives you all three. The Triple Slam. We call it the Triple Bypass Special!smile
